    The Kerry they would rather you not know
    ... great insight on Kerry from Ann Coulter's new book, All the Best.

    Kerry was indisputably brave in Vietnam, and it's kind of cute to see Democrats pretend to admire military service. Physical courage, like chastity, is something liberals usually deride, but are tickled when it accidentally manifests itself in one of their own. One has to stand in awe of Kerry's military service 33 years ago. Of course, that's where it ends, including with Kerry -- inasmuch as, upon his return from war in 1970, he promptly began trashing his fellow Vietnam vets by calling them genocidal murderers.

    But if Bush can't talk to Kerry about the horrors of war, then Kerry sure as hell can't talk to anyone about the plight of the middle class. Kerry's life experience consists of living off other men's money by marrying their wives and daughters. For over 30 years, Kerry's primary occupation has been stalking lonely heiresses. Not to get back to his combat experience, but Kerry sees a room full of wealthy widows as "a target-rich environment." This is a guy whose experience dealing with tax problems is based on spending his entire adult life being supported by rich women.

    What does a kept man know about taxes? In 1970, Kerry married into the family of Julia Thorne -- a family estimated to be worth about $300 million. She got depressed, so he promptly left her and was soon seen catting around with Hollywood starlets, mostly while the cad was still married.
    (Apparently, JFK really was his mentor.)

    Thorne is well-bred enough to say nothing ill of her Lothario ex-husband. He is, after all, the father of her children -- a fact that never seemed to constrain him. When Kerry was about to become the latest Heinz family charity, he sought to have his marriage to Thorne annulled, despite the fact that it had produced two children. It seems his second meal ticket, Teresa Heinz, wanted the first marriage annulled -- and Heinz is worth more than $700 million.

    Kerry claims he will stand up to powerful interests, but he can't even stand up to his wife. Heinz made Kerry sign a prenuptial agreement, presumably aware of how careless he is with other people's property, such as other people's Vietnam War medals, which Kerry threw on the ground during a 1971 anti-war demonstration.

    At pains to make Kerry sound like a normal American, his campaign has described how Kerry risked everything, mortgaging his home in Boston to help pay for his presidential campaign. Technically, Kerry took out a $6 million mortgage for "his share" of "the family's home" -- which was bought with the Heinz family fortune.
    (Why should he spend his own money? He didn't throw away his own medals.)

    I'm sure the average working stiff in Massachusetts can relate to a guy who borrows $6 million against his house to pay for TV ads. Kerry's campaign has stoutly insisted that he will pay off the mortgage himself, with no help from his rich wife. Let's see: According to tax returns released by his campaign, in 2002, Kerry's income was $144,091.

    But as The Washington Post recently reported, even a $5 million mortgage paid back over 30 years at favorable interest rates would cost $30,389 a month or $364,668 a year.

    The Democrats' joy at nominating Kerry is perplexing. To be sure, liberals take a peculiar, wrathful pleasure in supporting pacifist military types. And Kerry's life story is not without a certain feral aggression.

    But if we're going to determine fitness for office based on life experience, Kerry clearly has no experience dealing with problems of typical Americans since he is a cad and a gigolo living in the lap of other men's money.

    Kerry is like some character in a Balzac novel, an adventurer twirling the end of his mustache and preying on rich women. This low-born poseur with his threadbare pseudo-Brahmin family bought a political career with one rich woman's money, dumped her, and made off with another heiress to enable him to run for president.

    If Democrats want to talk about middle-class tax cuts, couldn't they nominate someone who hasn't been a poodle to rich women for past 33 years? Don't forget -- John Kerry is strong on defense:

    He voted to kill the Bradley Fighting Vehicle
    He voted to kill the M-1 Abrams Tank
    He voted to kill every Aircraft carrier laid down from 1988
    He voted to kill the Aegis anti aircraft system
    He voted to Kill the F-15 strike eagle
    He voted to Kill the Block 60 F-16
    He voted to Kill the P-3 Orion upgrade
    He voted to Kill the B-1
    He voted to Kill the B-2
    He voted to Kill the Patriot anti Missile system
    He voted to Kill the FA-18
    He voted to Kill the B-2
    He voted to Kill the F117

    In short, he voted to kill every military appropriation for the development and deployment of every weapons systems since 1988 to include the battle armor for our troops.
    With Kerry as president our Army will be made up of naked men running around with sticks and clubs. He also voted to kill all anti terrorism activities of every agency of the US Government and to cut the funding of the FBI by 60%, to cut the funding for the CIA by 80%, and cut the funding for the NSA by 80%.

    But then he voted to increase OUR funding for U.N operations by 800%!!!

    Why? Does what she wrote make what he voted on untrue?

    Does it make this statement false since Ann Coulter was the author?

    Maybe her way of writing the truth makes this statement incorrect?

    Are you saying we shouldn't listen to her because we wouldn't want to know this?

    Ignore Coulter all you like, but you can't ignore the facts.

    Hmm... why not? Don't like what she has to say, or do you have a legit reason such as being untruthful?

    I'd bet it's the former, rather than the latter.


    This is his most grievous sin. Hasn't young Kerry been running around bellowing about 'bad intelligence'? How do you get good intelligence? Certainly not by gutting our intelligence services.

    I hope Bush uses this stake to drive through Kerry's beating heart during the upcoming presidential debates.

    I don't think you guys realize that Coulter is the MM of the right, so when she says he voted to cut intelligence spending, I would bet she is looking at parts of bills that also included something else that Kerry was really wanting to vote against, than you also have to take into consideration what is her idea of cutting money spent on the intelligence agencies.

    The Patriot Missile System has been a waste of money thus far, especially back in the early 90s, it would be unwise for Kerry to vote in favor of continuing to pour money down the drain.

    In the 92 state of the union address, Bush I said "After completing 20 planes for which we have begun procurement, we will shut down production of the B-2 bomber. We will cancel the ICBM program. We will cease production of new warheads for our sea-based missiles. We will stop all production of the peacekeeper missile. And we will not purchase any more advanced cruise missiles."

    Many of the military systems Republicans criticize Kerry for voting against, they themselves appauled for back in 92.

    Shutting down production of ICBM's and Peacekeeper missiles was used to show the world that there was no intention of blowing anybody up. Shutting down production of the patriot anti-missile batteries would show the world that we want to be blown up.
